I'm trying to determine if the number we're getting on a new box is pretty good or not. The vendor (for the app we're installing) requires 1500-2500IO/Sec. We're getting about 3890IO/Sec, and I'm testing using MS's SQL IO benchmark tool.
Thoughts? I'm not at all a SQL guy. I get the machines up and running, install stuff, attach the app, and stuff just works. Beyond permissions, backups, restores, etc. I'm no SQL genius. We've never actually had a vendor request specific IO requirements before.
